    Tokyo Sumida-ku Narihira 1-17-6
    The Sky Duck is an amphibious bus that looks like a boat with tires attached and provides tours of Tokyo. The bus travels from Tokyo Skytree through the streets of Tokyo on the Kyunaka River, leaving the water to return back to the Skytree via land roads. The highlight of the tour is the “splash point,” when the bus drives full speed into the water with everyone on board, creating an exciting jolt and raising a great plume of water. The Sky Duck tour takes approximately 100 minutes. The bus makes a popular activity to enjoy either before or after checking out Tokyo Skytree itself. Tokyo Skytree Station is the closest station to bus boarding station.
